If you have checked out a lot of websites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message every now and then. An error may occur in case the web server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this sort of messages could sometimes be irritating as the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting companies allow you to use your own error pages that will match the layout of your own website and that could have any content which you would like - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion what you can do or even some amusing comment. This sort of function shall help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting

The personalized error pages function is offered with each and every shared hosting package deal we offer and you will be able to substitute all the generic pages with your own with no more than several mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting CP. You shall need to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a given domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can do this for each and every website hosted inside the account individually, so that every set of custom made pages will have the exact same design and style as the Internet site it's part of. If necessary, you may always go back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. An alternate way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you can simply copy the needed program code from our Help article on this subject.

If you choose the aforementioned option, you must type the link to each page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the sort of page which will appear if a user encounters an error can be modified anytime. If you're more experienced, you can use an .htaccess file in order to set personalized error pages as well, instead of using our integrated generator tool, and should you pick this option, the file should be placed in the root directory of a particular domain or subdomain.
